The Easy Way: World Class Services Guide to DIY HVAC Tips

With scorching summers and freezing winters, having a functioning Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system is nothing short of a necessity. World Class Services is your go-to solution for top-notch HVAC services and AC installation, but we also believe in empowering you with knowledge to maintain your system at home.

Regular Maintenance is Key

The key to a long-lasting HVAC system is regular and thorough maintenance. This includes tasks such as cleaning or replacing the air filter and vacuuming the blower compartments to remove dust. Sensors should also be checked and condensation drains inspected to ensure they are not blocked. While our team of experts is always ready to assist you with these tasks, you can also tackle them on your own with our guidance.

Optimal Thermostat Settings

Using your thermostat responsibly can significantly enhance the efficiency of your HVAC unit, and thus its lifespan. During summer, setting it around 78 degrees Fahrenheit while you’re home can prevent overworking the system. In winter, 68 degrees should suffice. Invest in a programmable thermostat – these automatically adjust temperatures for different times of the day, helping you save on energy bills.

Fans aren’t just decorative

While fans don’t cool air themselves, they provide a wind-chill effect, and can make a room feel 4 degrees cooler. This allows you to raise your thermostat setting, decreasing the strain on your AC and prolonging its life. Fans are significantly cheaper to run than AC units, hence using them during mild weather can result in substantial power savings.

Professional Inspection and Servicing

Finally, understand that while DIY tasks can keep your system operational for a long time, professional inspection and service are non-negotiable. An expert eye can detect and rectify potential issues before they become full-fledged problems. Fortunately, professional HVAC services are one of our many specialties at World Class Services.

Never compromise on the comfort of your home; a small effort in understanding your HVAC system can go a long way. Reach out to our team today for any assistance or advice you may need.
